Superhero Showdown 2016 – Deadpool vs Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice vs Captain America: Civil War vs X-Men: Apocalypse vs Suicide Squad vs Doctor Strange

Gary Collinson on the 2016 superhero box office showdown…

We’re used to seeing three or four superhero movies each year, but 2016 sees Hollywood’s infatuation with costumed heroes making the jump to ludicrous speed with Six superhero movies set to grace the big screen (it would have been seven, had Fox been able to get its act together on Gambit). But which one will come out on top? Here’s our predictions for this year’s Superhero Showdown…

Revisiting Last Year’S Predictions

As always, we’ll get things underway with a quick recap of last year, which saw Marvel bringing the curtain down on Phase Two with Avengers: Age of Ultron and Ant-Man, and 20th Century Fox killing the Fantastic Four franchise again with the disasterous reboot from director Josh Trank.

Last Year’s Prediction – “While it should comfortably double the combined take of Ant-Man and The Fantastic Four, »

Joker and Harley Quinn teased in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice Super Bowl spot

8 February 2016 1:22 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

DC and Turkish Airlines had two Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice commercials placed in last night’s Superbowl, announcing the airline’s new routes to Metropolis and Gotham.

In the latter, amongst shots of Bruce Wayne discussing rebuilding his beloved Gotham after the events of Man of Steel, the cityscape twice shows a building called Ace Chemicals.

Ace Chemicals is known as one of The Joker’s most prominent origin stories (definitively told in Alan Moore’s The Killing Joke). There, a stand-up comedian with no name is dressed up as the infamous gangster ‘Red Hood’. He falls into a vat of chemicals after a showdown with a young Batman, permanently bleaching his skin white, and birthing The Joker.

A very similar scene is shown in the most recent Suicide Squad trailer, where Dr. Harleen Quinzel (who later becomes The Joker’s lover and partner-in-crime Harley Quinn) is lifted »

‘Batman V Superman’ Super Bowl ads offer two destinations

8 February 2016 12:54 AM, PST | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

The Super Bowl ads for Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice offered something a little different from the rest. Rather than just blowing us away with a high-octane commercial, Warner Bros. teamed up with the official airline partner for the upcoming superhero movie, Turkish Airlines, to bring us not one, but two infomercials offering up flights to both Gotham and Metropolis.

Fearing the actions of a god-like Super Hero left unchecked, Gotham City’s own formidable, forceful vigilante takes on Metropolis’s most revered, modern-day savior, while the world wrestles with what sort of hero it really needs. And with Batman and Superman at war with one another, a new threat quickly arises, putting mankind in greater danger than it’s ever known before.

Casting Walking Dead characters in Batman – watch the first episode of Flickering Myth’s Jump Cut

7 February 2016 2:44 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Two actors from the hit AMC zombie drama The Walking Dead are in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice – the lovely Lauren Cohan, who plays Maggie, and Jeffrey Dean Morgan, who plays super bad guy Negan. They will be Martha and Dr. Thomas Wayne respectively, Bruce Wayne’s mum and dad.

It got me thinking: how would the characters they play in The Walking Dead, and the other principle cast, best translate into the Batman mythology? And, as the second half of The Walking Dead beings this Sunday, why not devote the first episode of Flickering Myth’s new weekly YouTube show Jump Cut to the question? You can watch the video below, or, if you fancy text-based fantasy casting scenarios, the transcript is just beneath that.

First, the obvious one. Rick Grimes, the main man in Walking Dead, would be Bruce Wayne Batman. Apart from both being their respective universes’ central characters, »

Zack Snyder on the Justice League’s involvement in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice

5 February 2016 3:08 PM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

As well as bringing DC’s two biggest icons together on the big screen for the very first time, Warner Bros.Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice will also pave the way for the two-part Justice League movie by featuring Wonder Woman, Aquaman, Cyborg and The Flash, and director Zack Snyder has been discussing the role they’ll play during an interview with Hall of Justice.

“As far as the other Justice League characters go, they play a very small role,” states Snyder. “It’s really just a whisper they exist. Except for Wonder Woman, we see her really well. But really, the movie is about Batman and Superman. And we really take time with them and we really drill down on the why of them and what they stand for and their beliefs and them as characters. That’s pretty much the why of the movie. But again as I said, »

Glenn and Maggie's 'Walking Dead' Reunion Won't Be a Happy One

5 February 2016 1:31 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

The first half of The Walking Dead's sixth season was particularly hard for fans of Steven Yeun's Glenn Rhee, who was thought to be killed off in the third episode, Thank You. We saw Nicholas (Michael Traynor) kill himself as both he and Glenn fell into a herd of walkers. But we found out just a few episodes later that Glenn did in fact make it out alive. In the fall finale, we saw Glenn and Enid (Katelyn Nacon) make it back to Alexandria, just as the "walkers" started infiltrating the compound. Entertainment Weekly recently spoke with Lauren Cohan, who teased that Maggie's reunion with Glenn may not be as heartwarming as one would expect.

"The reunion is going to be somewhat overshadowed by a lot of other darkness. I think I can say that much. Because they have found each other and just in time to sort »

Zack Snyder on Man of Steel: “If you’re a comic book fan, you know that I didn’t change Superman”

5 February 2016 12:22 PM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Despite the fact the movie is almost three years old, Zack Snyder is still coming under fire from some fans for his handling of Superman in the 2013 reboot Man of Steel.

Appearing on the Hall of Justice podcast to promote Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, Snyder has once again addressed complaints about the film, stating that comic book fans who know the true canon of the Man of Steel know he didn’t change Superman.

“I was pretty ready for it,” said Snyder with regards to the backlash. “I knew that we were really updating a beloved character. I don’t think ‘changing him’ — People are always like ‘you changed Superman.’ If you’re a comic book fan, you know that I didn’t change Superman. If you know the true canon, you know that I didn’t change Superman. If you’re a fan of the old movies, »

The Walking Dead's Lauren Cohan Reveals the Moment That Made Her Want to Quit

3 February 2016 8:15 AM, PST | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

The Walking Dead without Maggie Greene? There was a moment when Lauren Cohan almost called it quits, the actress revealed. While sitting down with James Lipton and other cast members on Bravo's Inside the Actors Studio, Cohan said the season three scene where she had to perform a c-section on Lori (Sarah Wayne Callies) almost sent her packing. After reading the script, she said she consulted her on-screen husband Steven Yeun. "I knock on Steven's door and I said I have to leave the show, I don't think I can do it," she admitted. "It affects you so deeply to the core to touch on—to dive into so much of this material and then I realized that's why I have to do it because the outcome of »

That Time Lauren Cohan Wanted to Quit The Walking Dead Because of a Gruesome Death Scene

2 February 2016 10:59 AM, PST | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

You have to be a hardy soul to film a show like The Walking Dead, full of constant death and destruction. Lauren Cohan, who plays Maggie with steadiness and warmth, almost reached her breaking point during the third season, when her character had to perform an emergency C-section. When she read the script, she sought her onscreen husband, Steven Yeun (Glenn!), to talk it over. "I knock on Steven’s door, and I said, 'I have to leave the show. I don’t think I can do it,'" Cohan said on Inside the Actor's Studio. "It affects you so deeply to the core to dive into so much of this material." The most important part of this anecdote, though, is that the actors all live next to each other in an "incestuous" situation. Please, go on. »

Scoot McNairy rumoured to be another villain in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice

2 February 2016 12:27 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Despite the film coming out in under two months, rumours and speculation are still running rampant for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, particularly when it comes to the bad guys. We’ve heard potential rumours of Bizarro showing up in the movie via some Lego sets (and a seemingly concrete confirmation) and there was a rumour a while back that villains such as KGBeast would show up at some point. We already know that Lex Luthor and Doomsday are in the anticipated team-up, but a new rumour suggests that another villain will be on the big screen.

It is still unknown who Scoot McNairy will be playing in the movie – with speculation saying he’s Jimmy Olsen, Metallo and even Green Lantern – but Latino-Review say they’ve got the inside scoop. According to the website, McNairy is playing an anonymous pawn in Lex Luthor’s plan, and was left »

30 January 2016 1:00 PM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

With less than two months to go before The Dark Knight takes on the Man of Steel, BoxOffice.com is forecasting a $154 million domestic box office opening for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, which would be the tenth biggest North American opening of all time behind The Hunger Games: Catching Fire ($158 million).
